While I sympathize with you and trust me I do. I only make $1290 a month. $168 of that goes to pay my health care every month. It should also be
noted that my taxes here in Canada work like this....
They take 22% of each and every single pay.
13% goes health care (it is not free, like people think)
6% goes to land/hghway/municiple/provincial/federal programs
3% any and all government run industries (police, fire depts.,libraries etc etc)
Again they are protecting us from us.
I am sorry to say this but, and it hurts, but,
it was your choice to have 3 kids, it was your choice not to find the means to finish school, or get your mechanics license, your choice to get a Temp
job at 10$/hour. All your choices have led you down a path that may or may not seem like the life you wish to live.
Proving my point.
You may wish to look into Massachusetts Financial Services, they are always hiring, and while commissions may be a scary thing, the company will
change yours and your families life if you want to learn, work hard, and push yourself. It isn't easy, and it is not the career path for most....But
up here in Canada I made over 60K my first year in business, 8 years later I am glad I took the chance that was given to me.
Sure beats jumping off the back of a garbage truck picking up big heavy bags filled with peoples discarded wastes, dirty used tampons and used
condoms. I did that for 9 years of my life.
So again, it;s your decision.
Let me prove something else to you. You say that you can't afford it right....What would happen, if one of your children came home from a Doctors
consultation and the prognosis was a disease, but one that was manageable and liveable, but would cost you 20,000 a month in medication (like MS or
ALS medications do).
